Military commander turned outlaw
Currently equipped with a +1 shield, +1 Longsword, and +1 Mithral Breastplate, all provided on the party’s behalf.
Elbert Payne was a Captain in the Valendia military until he was accused of the murder of a comrade-in-arms. Knowing he’d be found guilty in a court-martial, Elbert fled the scene with a troupe of intensely loyal soldiers, making his home in the northern mountain ranges. The party hunted him down as part of a mission for the Emerald Gauntlets. During this mission, however, Portia became convinced of his innocence and swore to protect him.
Elbert is a fierce fighter and effective commander, whose battlefield orders inspire and aid those on the battlefield. Only the Gods know and only Time will tell if he’s innocent.
